Riding during the Week

Does anyone do it often? I work 2nd/3rd shift and I like to ride after work. Early mornings are nice, but sometimes i back out because I get worried going alone.


Does anyone regularly ride during the week and wouldn't mind having someone tag along?

So now that we know the "weekday riders" do in fact exist...

Early, late, long short?

You bet, I leave my place at 7:10AM. I will be going down 1960, Atascocita rd to BW8, and exit Aldine Westfield. Pretty much sums up the ride but you are more than welcome to tag along.

You mean some of you drive a car?

I ride daily. To work. Home. Store. Wherever. If i get in the car its because I've got someone with me, have to carry more than the bike will hold, or the weather is going to be ugly and I don't want to give Houston's fine drivers even more of an opportunity to turn me into road pizza.
